Elea Jewelry offers such elegant and sophisticated designs that I couldn't decide which pieces to showcase in this feature. Instead, I created a slide show of many of my favourites. When you visit this shop you'll see what I mean. The Gold Trillion Diamond ring sits beside me in all its dainty splendour and I don't want to let it go. Of course, I will.
One of you lucky readers is going to take it home. Please like this post on Facebook or comment below to be entered. This contest closes in twenty four hours. Good Luck!
Gathered and Sown
You can't imagine how much I adore this leather clutch. It sits beside me on the couch as I type this. I've removed the essentials from my extremely messy purse and placed them neatly into my new clutch. The old purse will hang in the back of my closet where purses go to die. I don't mean to sound dramatic but there is no way I am going to clean that purse out anytime soon.
Gathered and Sown has gifted me with this chic little bag and not only is it gorgeous but it is too small for bags of goldfish, ninja turtles or diapers. It is perfection.
Yes, there is one for you. It is a gorgeous maple brown color, so perfect for the Fall. Please like this post on Facebook or comment below to be entered. This contest closes in twenty four hours. Good Luck!
Global Groove Life
Did you know you could look cute at the gym or the office and still promote fair trade? Okay, I am not trying to be flip here but you will look totally cute with one of these covers for your yoga ball. Global Groove Life, through sustainable design and development, have created products that makes us look good and feel great about using them. If you can't be a globe-trotting artisan promoting fair trade around the world then at least support one!
Not only did these fine folks send me the paisley yoga ball for Kate's service dog fundraiser auction later this month, they also sent the Eco-iPhone speaker below for some lucky follower to win. So, as usual, please like this post on Facebook or comment below to be entered. And while you're at it, why don't you do yourself a favor and check out this shop. You could get your charity and your Christmas shopping on at the same time.
Ruxitirisi creates minimalist stunning handmade gold filled and sterling silver jewelry . What interests me most about this artist is this sneak peak into her shop. Go ahead, click that link and see where the magic happens. I just love knowing the history of something I own. The potter who makes my mug, the seamstress who sews my sweater or the metalsmith who creates my jewelry.
These pieces are sophisticated and classic and absolutely perfect for an exhausted autism mom wearing yoga pants and drinking wine on a Tuesday night. What, just me? Of course, I kid, they are really perfect for anyone. Get a jump on your Christmas shopping, why don't you?

The Dolly Dama
At my house we have lots of "American Girl" dolls. You know, the kind that they sell at Target. They always forget to write American Girl on the box but they are just as beautiful and special as those that come from NYC. Is your house the same? Of course it is. Who can afford the real deal?
Our Grace, like any six year old, is obsessed. When she spotted the shop The Dolly Dama one evening, she begged me to request a sample. She surprised me when she suggested the sample be auctioned off at Kate's service dog fundraiser. I, of course, obliged and the talented seamstress was happy to provide us with this dress for the auction. Now, Grace is beyond thrilled that we have such a priceless item at our auction. She is allowing her most special doll to model it for you. She would like to remind you that the doll is NOT included!
If you would like to reserve a bid on this dress please email me here. Otherwise, we will see you at the auction. And, please, browse this shop. I am sure you have a darling or two in your life that would appreciate these dresses as much as Miss Grace.
First of all, she is doing her PhD in archeology and much of her research surrounds autism and theory of mind. So, as if I needed another reason to adore her. But then, she went and sent me this tiny handmade bookshelf necklace and forever cemented my adoration.
Go check out her shop Coryographies, and tell me how she does it? Maybe I am jealous but I prefer to think she has an army of tiny elves helping her build these awesome creations! Wait, that story sounds familiar....
I will be auctioning off my bookshelf necklace at Kate's service dog fundraiser in a few weeks. If you'd like to place a reserve bit, please email me here. Otherwise, enjoy 10% off your order with coupon code GOTEAMKATE. Happy Shopping.
Each night as my family sits down to a home cooked meal we discuss all the best parts of our day...and if you believe that you are brand new to this blog. We may eat what can be prepared in fifteen minutes or less and we may eat in satellite locations but we eat at the same(ish) time and we always talk.
Jennilyons81 has helped us get a little closer to that ideal family dinner with the personalized napkins you see below. Whether we are sitting together with a balanced meal or not we can use our napkins to start a discussion. There are a number of sentences that can be added to your napkins so check in with Jenni and tell her what you'd like on yours.
While you're there you should browse the shop for other personalized gifts for the home. You can be in denial all you want but the fact is there are only a few paydays left until Christmas and you need to start shopping!
I have a few sets of these napkins to give away so please like this post on Facebook or comment below to be entered. This contest closes in twenty-four hours. Good Luck!
